Daily Diary: I Cant’ Believe In Less Than Three Weeks I Will Be In CHINA #BucketListChina



My upcoming trip to China with Mandarin Journeys is all I can talk about lately. No matter what I am doing or who I am with, it always ends up coming up as a point of conversation.

“Ma’am, how would you like you burger cooked?”

“Oh. I’ll take it well done. I’m going to China. Hold the mustard.”

Yup. That’s pretty much how it’s going down as of late. I can’t stop talking about it. I’m pretty sure my friends just want to ship me away at this point so I can get it out of my system. Because China every China other China word China is China… China.


I’ve applied for my visa and am waiting for approval. Have I thought about packing? Absolutely not! All I know is that I want to pack as lightly as possibly which is going to be harder than delivering three babies for me. I am a perpetual over-packer. But I think I have to take it easy with this one because I am going to be the one lugging around my suitcase. I keep reminding myself of that. Bill isn’t coming along!

There are so many things I am looking forward to doing with Mandarin Journeys. Their itinerary for this trip looks simply amazing. A tea ceremony is WAY ON TOP FOR ME THOUGH. You know I’m a girl that loves a good cup and I think we are actually going to pick some leaves first. WHAT?
